same. but the bees still creep me out. well nothing creeping us out about the weather. this is awesome. >> no. this is good. and i have to believe that somewhere along the line, we're going to pay for this. >> well, yeah. that's one pessimistic way to look at it. >> i'm waiting for that humidity to roll through. >> it's going to come back. i know it will be. bu so far we are rolling, aren't we. this is good stuff. and you know what, the week's forecast does not look too ba it does look like, just in case you're planning, that a slight pattern change is upon us and it looks like it wants to do so toward the end of the week and into the weekend. and what i mean by that is i think, as will was mentioning about the humidity, it does want to creep back in here in the latter part of the weekend and next weekend. that's what the long range guidance is suggesting right now. and there seems to be a little bit of a trend with that. we'll watch it for the next couple of days to see if it gets a god handle on it and we'll report back.
10:51 pm
how about that. a deal is a deal. reagan national, high of 85. bwi marshall 86. and the thing about today that was so nice was the fact there wasn't much in the way of humidity out there. so it was very nice and very comfortable. and most of what we had today was just clear skies across the mid-atlantic. all up and down the eastern seaboard. high pressure has built in. there are a few clouds out there tonight and you can make those out on our high resolution imagery. but we're dry and where most of the rain is has pushed well down to the south. this is all along the frontal boundary. the same front that came through here a couple of days ago. and it left clouds in the area yesterday. but as it pushed farther to the south, it took all of that away. overnight tonight, mostly fair skies. a cloud or two, that's about it. 67 in the city. mid to upper 60s in the city. inside the beltway. you get outside the beltway in the suburbs and it is cooler and that's no exception tonight
10:52 pm
as numbers will be down into the lower 60s. we start out tomorrow in pretty good shape. lots of sunshine. late in the day, we're watching this frontal system getting closer to us. as it gets closer to us, it will kick up a few clouds and right now it looks like it may kick up a few showers too. most of the shower activity will stay to the north ofs. there is a little bit more moisture up here and that will allow showers from new jersey all the way up into new england. but i have to believe this far south, along the front, late in the afternoon, early in the evening, there could be a shower or two. more like a thundershower, spotty in nature. so it looks very isolated out there tomorrow afternoon, tomorrow evening. maybe onor two pop up along that front. tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m., 72. we're up to 83 by lunchtime and 86 at 4:00. and here is what it looks like for the next five days.
10:53 pm
